OK, so it takes me a while to get into new habits. Blogging more consistently is a goal I have for February. Send me any tips you have on that please! Here are my workouts for the past two weeks:
Wednesday: Yoga in the morning. Good times!
Friday: Rest. I did hoof it over to the Lululemon Warehouse sale and waited in line for a while.
Saturday: 13.1 mile run with the CES Winter Warriors program. This was the final weekend of the program, so I ran it to finish things out! I’d been out late the night before (!) so I wasn’t feeling like pushing myself for most of the run. Lilian and I did a comfortable run together, although I pushed it in for the last two miles. Had a wonderful oatmeal bar back at Fleet Feet after the ‘race.’
And then onto this week!
January 30 – February 5:
Monday: 30 minute strength training session w/ Dan at Hard Pressed Chicago. I always love these workouts as they’re hard, but it’s only 30 minutes long. You can push yourself hard for 30 minutes.
Tuesday: This was my first cycling class over at Vision Quest Coaching. They are a computrainer gym, so you bring your bike and put it on a trainer that is then set up to provide you with a customized workout for the day. Everyone performs the same workout, but just at your own level of intensity, as measured by watts & power. I don’t know too much about this stuff yet, but it’s safe to say that was the hardest bike workout I’ve ever done.
Wednesday: Slept in as my butt still hurt. I’d meant to go to yoga, but was tired and also had some early work duties on my mind. I did attend the Chicago Tri Club monthly meeting though!
Thursday: Another personal training session in the AM, and then went to the Running Away Ladies Night Run. I did a quick 3 miles and met some awesome ladies!
Friday: Rest. Although roaming the aisles at Target could be considered a workout!
Saturday: Rest. I did go and volunteer at the Dare2Tri swim clinic, which was a fun experience. I assisted a blind woman in improving her freestyle stroke, and got to see a bunch of other amazing people work on their swimming as well – whether it was a quadriplegic child who’d never been in a pool before, or a seasoned paratriathlete work on improving his or her stroke!
Sunday: Haven’t finished it yet, but I’m planning on a 4 mile run. Hopefully a tempo style run
So – Lots of rest one week, and then a relatively light week for this past week! I’m putting some specific goals for February into place soon!
